Availability of enormous number of digital music presents challenge to organize and retrieve it in an effective way. We explore polyphonic Indonesian folksongs retrieval based on pattern matching such as n-gram in searching the songs. We compare the pattern matching results to regular text-based information retrieval system. The folksongs are either fully or partially indexed. The results of the experiments show that using text-based IR system or n-gram matching technique, both are effective in retrieving the polyphonic songs, regardless of the query length or position where the query fragment is taken. However, to achieve a better performance, fully indexed songs is preferable than partially indexed songs.
